My wedding ring is platinum, so any casing other than white gold or stainless doesn't work for me. I highly prefer brown straps and stainless to black, so that is somewhat limiting. These are some I like a lot though, in no order:
I love the classic Cartier face, and I love the shape of the Roadster. For my arm, the large size is a little big, the midsize a little small. I'm also a lefty, so the winder might be irritating as it's very large.
Not a huge Panerai fan, but this one is nice. Probably the only watch I've seen where a brown strap and black face look good.
Clean lines, easy to dress up and down.
My favorite Omega.
